This picture postcard of the courthouse is from the 1950's, about 10 years before it was razed.
It is believed that it was built in the early 1870's. It was not the first county courthouse on this site.
During the Civil War, guerrillas burnt the courthouse, but did not destroy the county clerk's office, which was in a separate building in the courthouse square.
